Osprey Elite 117 : US World War II Amphibious Tactics : Army & Marine Corps, Pacific Theater

The US armed forces were responsible for many tactical innovations during the years 1941-45 and achieved complete mastery over amphibious warfare. In the vast, almost empty battlefield of the Pacific the US Navy and Marine Corps were obliged to develop every aspect of the amphibious assault landing in painstaking detail, from the design of many new types of vessel, down to the tactics of the rifle platoon hitting the beach, and the logistic system without which they could not have fought their way inland. This study offers a clear, succinct explanation of every phase of these operations as they evolved during the war years, illustrated with detailed colour plates and photographs. Text by Gordon Rottman with illustrations by Peter Dennis.
